Attempt at modifying a figure to depict the casualty next to the horse at the rear of the gun.

Going to do a couple of figures to break it up.

You've got figure shading and detailing down to a science. Weaponry assembled looks better than the loose pieces would suggest.

It would appear you are using acrylics for the flesh, excellent results, for me that would be tough because I am old school oils but like the acrylics for uniforms / clothing.
Cheers Eh!

Your right, Vallejo acrylics. Needs work blending and softening yet.
Also work on the arms. Thanks for looking in.

Can't blame him with a giant pin vice drilled into his neck Al. LOL
Might think about giving him a proper head soon.
The figures come with photo etch braces but were difficult to position without breaking them off so I knocked those up from foil. He'll be sat on the ground leaning against a horse so the foil is easily bent and positioned.
Thanks for looking in Al, hope your well.

P.S. Missing Mile End Garage.

Dead or wounded/dying. The one at the rear of the gun.
I'll go and take a look at the car Al.
Enjoy the trip.

Always lots of figures for war dios, but we in the car segment are soooo jealous. Of course, we don't have to detail faces and do all the weathering and shading of outfits.

Thanks Andy, better late than never my friend LOL.
The braces were made from the foil covering from a wine bottle. (Covering the cork).
The kit comes with photo etch braces but I found then very rigid and difficult to position
without breaking off the figure.
Also it was a good excuse to open a bottle of wine. I'm compiling a list of what I can use more of it for!!
Thanks for looking in.
